3 Questions Answered
Q. Can I take legal action to receive the total compensation I should have been paid while working there?
A: Yes. You can take action. You should hurry though because you are running up against the statute of limitations. You should be able to use the documentation and text messages that you already have in your possession. You may take the restaurant to small claims court for the difference in the amount that you were paid and what you are actually owed. You will be able to seek double the amount owed under the NC Wage and Hour Act (as liquidated damages) because it involves back wages.
Q. How long can a previous employer legally expect payback for income that was accidentally overpaid during employment?
A: First, it should be determined if the employee was actually overpaid. If there was an overpayment, the employer may ask them to return the money. If the employee refuses to return the money, the employer may take them to court to recover it.
Q. Can you get fired for wanting to be sent home after requesting payment that was never received?
A: You have a right to complain about unpaid wages but you may not be allowed to choose your worksite unless you have an employment contract that says otherwise. You can complain through your company's formal channels about the unpaid wages and the worksite's timekeeping issues. If that is unsuccessful then you may file a complaint with the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division. It is illegal for a company to fire you for complaining about unpaid wages. If that happens you may need to speak to an employment attorney.
